Hip Thrust for BDW2

Hi coach! I love the new BDW. I wanted to add more glute work, specifically hip thrust, because I suffer from flat ass syndrome. I’m just not exactly sure what days to place them in, push or pull. I was also thinking of replacing them for another exercise and doing them 3 times a week. 1 day rest/pause style, another with iso-holds, and another day with the micro set style. Or is this idea just silly?? thanks again for all the great content

I’m probably not the right guy to ask because I don’t like hip thrust. I’m not saying that they don’t work. I just don’t like them. I never program them in my client’s plans except for light frog pumps for activation purposes.

I would pull them in pull because it is a hinge after all, and you also use hammies. Honestly I wouldn’t do them 3 times a week, just use a configuration that has a glute emphasis: romanian dead/leg curl/hip thrust and low bar squat/deep wide stance leg press/whatever
